It easy to use and easy to clean.

That in itself is a good selling point for this product, that you can get feedback and assistance from Presto Monday-Friday during business hours.

I've tried four of the recipes (sweet and sour chicken, pot roast, beef ribs, and saffron fish stew) and they've been GREAT!

I am a first time user of any type of pressure cooker so was a little afraid of the old stories of pressure cookers. However, that fear is all gone. I had no trouble what so ever following the manual that came with the Presto stainless steel electric Pressure cooker. It is so easy. Just follow the directions. Have cooked several times with it already. Food was great. I have even cooked one of the recipes. The only thing I would suggest is brown your meats in an alternate pan as it does have a tendency to stick to the bottom of the cooker. Bottom line is I would recommend this product. Presto 02160 6-Quart Electric Stainless-Steel Pressure Cooker.

A long time ago I read somewhere that American Indians say that one must, when learning something new, perform the activity 28 times for it to stay in our mind. Well, my electric Presto 02160 6-quart pressure cooker arrived just a few days ago, and I've successfully used it for two stew recipes, and have only 26 more times to go before I can consider myself an expert with this pc. My first effort consisted of cooking boneless, skinless chicken thighs stewed with carrots and broth. The meal was excellent and took only six minutes to cook subsequent to browning the poultry in a small bit of cooking oil in the pc. Normally, this recipe would take five hours in my slow cooker.

My second effort also involved poultry, which we love as you can guess, but this time it was in the form of skinless, boneless chicken breasts, first browned in oil in the pc, and pressure cooked with veggies and broth [and noodles at the end] for a delicious chicken noodle soup. I used homemade, precooked noodles which I had in the freezer and added them to the hot broth after I had cooked the meat and veggies.

The pressure-cooker regulator was relatively quiet both times I used the pc, and because I followed the instructions exactly as stated in the instructions/recipes booklet--having read the instructions several times, first--I learned there was nothing to fear when using this appliance. I highly recommend this product especially because of its ease of use, reasonable price and the excellent flavor it imparts to the cooked ingredients.

Updated on Sept. 29, 2010: This particular pc is working so well for me that I have bought a second one just like it here at Amazon. I have made rice pudding several times and it was delicious. I've made chicken curry that was also excellent.

I did a lot of research before buying this product Presto 02160 6-Quart Electric Stainless-Steel Pressure Cooker and my goal was to find a Reliable electric pressure cooker that works out of the box and won't break after 6 or 7 uses, in fact it better last for several years! The primary Value to me is the Time Savings I get when using a pressure cooker to prepare home cooked meals, and electric models are supposed to come to pressure faster than stove-top models. If I don't have enough time to Invest in the kitchen, I definitely don't have enough time to Spend on the phone with customer service, so I looked for something that works and that will keep on working.

I started by looking at the solid-state versions, even took some trips to the local stores to see and touch a few models -- oddly enough, this particular product wasn't on display at any of the stores in my location, I only learned about it from my online research. From customer feedback, there seem to be some ongoing reliability problems with solid state control systems (pushbuttons, automatic timers, and LED displays) and this feedback wasn't limited to a single vendor (as of fall of 2010).

The product arrived quickly as promised and was in great shape, well packed. Some minor assembly (putting the handles on) -- if you know how to use a screwdriver, you shouldn't have any problems. The screws were taped into the handles - I like that as I didn't have to go looking for small parts in the packaging. I also like the design of the feet, keeps the cooker off the countertop and prevents unintentional movement.

I had never used a pressure cooker before my wife bought one at a garage sale a year ago. I quickly found out how fast that a pressure cooker can prepare a delicious family meal. The only problem was that the cooker required a gas stove. The bottom was concaved and with my glass top stove a long time was required to bring it up to heat. I decided to search for an electric model solve that problem. I looked at a couple of automatic digital models but they all seemed to have service questions with their digital bells and whistles. I don't need automatic start and stop timers on a pressure cooker. Maybe if I could text or tweet with it--- Never mind! I've got timers all over the house. I don't need one on a pressure cooker. I chose this 6 quart Presto and I'm glad I did! The temperature is adjustable from 0 to 400 degrees. That means that I can use it as a slow cooker or a fast cooker. I don't even need my crock pot anymore! So far I've made a 3 lb rump roast with root vegetables in about 45 mins. My next project is chili. High quality, high value and low maintenance.
